Summer in the District

Okay yes, I never did finish my London blogging adventure. BUT I do have pretty decent drafts from back then, so I might fix them up and do them as archived posts at a later date. But right now I have something EXCITING to talk about…

Ya girl is spending the summer in Washington D.C. working as an intern for a historic site and then just livin’ life in the district. 

I KNOW. How cool is that? It’s going to be one hell of a summer. I can’t wait to explore this amazing city even further and make new friends from around the country (and the world). There’s even a possibility that one of my lifelong friends would get the opportunity to come up here and stay with me!

I’ve been here for less than a week and this city already feels like home. Of course, driving here is no small feat. I definitely prefer taking the bus and the metro (London got me way too used to not driving in major cities). I’m living with family members, but I have my own space (which is amazing and I am so thankful). I’m gaining independence and preparing for the real world in major ways (which I also did in London, but I think you get the point). IMG_4677

I’m already working on my DC Summer Bucket List, but Google can only take me so far. I’ve done many of the tourist-y things already, but I’m planning on revisiting many of them. SO, I want to know what you like to do/want me to do this summer in DC! Leave suggestions in the comments or text me or FB message me or email me or send a carrier pigeon and I’ll add it to my list!

This summer is going to be just like my semester abroad – an adventure of a lifetime. I can’t wait to see what these next three months bring me. Hopefully it will include the chance to finish up my London blog posts!

HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!!

Today, go all out and go FULL. ON. ‘MERICAN.

 

I will hanging out with some of my friends tonight. I haven’t seen most of them since graduation (or the graduation party…whoops!). So, I’m uber excited. We’re going to get pizza at this super casual Italian buffet in my town. What’s more American than getting pizza and pasta? I suggested barbecue, but we then decided it would be far too crowded.

Anyways, I hope you have a GREAT DAY, full of fireworks and happiness!

Hey! Remember me? The girl who said she was going to be blogging more?

Yeah.

I guess that didn’t happen. I wish I could say it was because I was off on a fantastic trip, or I had a really cool job that took up all my time, but sadly, I don’t. I’ve been babysitting and writing and trying to come up with an idea for a post. I didn’t think it would be so soon before I almost fell off the blogging train.

But hey, I’ve been writing a new story, and that’s awesome. And I’ve been obsessing over the newest episode of Welcome to Night Vale. It’s divine but at the same time, it’s only part A. But Maureen Johnson is a goddess, and I love her as Intern Maureen.

Other than that, I haven’t been up to anything big, and hopefully will have some better posts coming up soon! Just wanted to check in and say that I haven’t forgotten already, haha!
